Glen Alta Span School
Los Angeles, CA
During the three-week read-a-thon students from Glen Alta Elementary School kept journals to document their reading. Altogether they read 42,033 pages. Two sixth-graders nearly tied for reading the most pages of any students in the school…reading 3,341 and 3,353 pages each! Glen Alta, along with Friends of The Jester & Pharley Phund, donated 35 copies of the bilingual edition of The Jester Has Lost His Jingle and 35 Jester & Pharley Dolls to Adventist Health White Memorial for use with their young patients. Adventist Health’s Liz Rodriguez attended the read-a-thon recognition assembly to accept the Jester book and doll donation. “These Jester & Pharley books and dolls help our patients cope with being in the hospital and bring smiles to their faces. Thank you for your kind support of our patients and families and brightening their lives with these joyful gifts,” Liz told Glen Alta students, teachers and staff.
